Xennial: Dreaming in Colour
Exploring 'new' territories, studying the concept of a micro generation described as Xennials, while exploring ideas of nationhood, nostalgia and re-apprpriation, this new series examines an uncharted generation that bridges the gap between two eras described as GenerationX and Millennials, while broadening the perspective of Welsh culture through the device of photography and lens based media.
Set in the peripheral of a small ex-mining village in the Gwendraeth Valley, this is a multi faceted collaboration project using a variety of media outlets - Social media, Blogs, Live Streams, Exhibitions - in an attempt to create a new perspective of Welsh-ness at the dawn of a Metamodernist era. While providing a rare and detailed insight into one of Wales lesser explored and culturally rich communities. Celebrating the wonder of childhood, friendship, and all things welsh, this project tells the tale of an 80s generation that saw the best of both worlds, old and new, while expanding the visual identity of Wales beyond its stereotypical archetypes.
